Hello world!Decision we take and the Choice we make is the Differentiator between Success & Failure:
In everyday life we are confronted by multiple situations where our decisions and choices are required, which leads to our purpose or destiny or takes us away from our purpose and destiny. It’s like choosing to Pray in the morning or not to Pray as you are getting late for work , well if you analyse this choice ; you will notice that you came into this situation because you got up late . Why because you wanted to sleep a little more, why because you went to bed late because you were busy watching late night show on the Tv. Why were you watching late night show , because you wanted to avoid the argument with your wife regarding the credit card purchase which she was not aware of (remember the night you said you were out with some office friends and you ended up in the PUB) .
Well see it all starts from one wrong decision which leads to a series of decisions which takes you from the purpose and Plan of God. So it’s critical for us to stay focused! If made a mistake confront it, address it and don’t avoid it! If you notice it’s always the feel good and feeding the fleshly desires which brings us into conflict zone! And when we push ourselves in the conflict zone we are completely governed by our egos and arrogance rather than Holy Spirit! Remember Samson how he knowingly got himself into a situation when his guard was down. First of all we need to be clear whom we belong to, why are we chose among all the people and our own relatives. If we have been chosen for a purpose and our destiny lies in glorifying God alone then how come our behaviour is so far away from the ways and the word of God. We need to restrain ourselves from anger, pride, ego, selfishness and lies. And from people who demonstrate the before mentioned traits; for the fruit of the Holyspirit ( evidence of us being born again /repentance and remission of our sins is reflected) is Love, Joy , peace , patience, kindness, goodness, holiness ,righteousness and self-control. “Then Delilah pouted, “How can you say you love me when you don’t confide in me? You’ve made fun of me three times now, and you still haven’t told me what makes you so strong!” So day after day she nagged him until he couldn’t stand it any longer. finally, Samson told her his secret. “My hair has never been cut,” he confessed, “for I was dedicated to God as a Nazirite from birth. If my head were shaved, my strength would leave me, and I would become as weak as anyone else.”
(Judges 16:15-17 )
When Samson made wrong choice of friend and wrong decision to share the secrets of God with the enemy of God and pride of power; his destruction was inevitable. So let us all choose right, make right decisions and let all our choice be guided by Holy Spirit to reflect the fruit of Him.
